This is one I brought home after the market closed to give him a close-up opportunity.
Not a realistic turtle shell color, but I like the way the glaze pools in the texture.
Small planters meant for succulents, also from this firing.
Weathered Bronze-Green with some turquoise matte glaze brushed over.
I love the texture and the rustic, earthy quality of this glaze.
The little spots of copper penny color are from flicking a mix of borax and water onto the planter with a toothbrush.
Yes, I do like this glaze. I imagine most people will be drawn to the more colorful ones, though.
Here and there I'd get more of a clump of the borax and water solution than I intended. I was a little concerned about that but decided to leave it alone and see what might happen. Turns out I'm O.K. with it- a Happy Circumstance, as my high school chemistry teacher would say. About what, I don't remember now.
